Scatterjam is a newly-formed performance company, founded by theatre-maker Rachel Causer and a team of Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts graduates. As a company, we are committed to creating female-led work that is socially and politically engaged whilst being physically and structurally explorative. We aim to produce work that actively challenges commonly held preconceptions and celebrates the comedic potential of doing so.
We need your help funding our latest project - When It Happens. Your donations will help Scatterjam to pay for rehearsal space, technical equipment, props, costume and fees associated with the theatre. Thank you for supporting grassroots theatre in London.
Previously self-funded, When It Happens returns to Tristan Bates Theatre after a sensational debut run at the Maiden Speech festival in 2018. Brought to you by an all-female cast and creative team, When It Happens is a surreal and outrageous comedy about micro-aggressions and personal revolutions.
‘This was an awakening. This was an eruption. This was a revolution. This was like eating three Berocca with no water and letting them bubble inside you.’
When It Happens follows the lives of three women on what they thought would be a normal day of micro-aggressions and self-doubt.
Then it happens…
At 2.16pm, a strange phenomenon occurs and each woman experiences a transformation, breaking free from the roles they’ve been forced to play and starting a hilarious and heart-wrenching rebellion against everything and everyone who put them there in the first place.
